Living Room Treehouse

A collection of beautifully designed treehouses in an ancient Welsh woodland
Yes, you really are staying up in the trees in a little wooden house, but no, it’s not a bodged job made from the remnants of a garden fence, or the wood you never got round to throwing on the bonfire. This breaks the mould in tree house design. From the moment you arrive in the farmyard, which is nestled halfway up a secret valley on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, you know you’re onto a winner. The air is so fresh, the sheep-filled meadows so lush and green – and the views... well, they’re simply to die for. After a warm welcome, help is on hand for your luggage as you head off through breathtaking scenery to find your treehouse. As the site is over 300 acres, you won't be able to see any of your fellow ‘treehousers’ from your spot and, thanks to the melodic sounds of the mountain stream and the wind in the leaves, it’s unlikely you’ll hear any of them either. The one likelihood is that you will be thrilled when you encounter your home. How exciting: actually staying in a tree house, clambering up its handmade wooden spiral staircase, supported by a twisted willow balustrade.The organic flowing creation is a beauty unto itself, with trees growing through, and supporting, its structure – all über-modern on the inside and with a living roof outside. These off-grid treehouses have everything you need to be warm and completely comfortable.  Free from the distractions of the modern world, this is a place to reconnect and share in the simple beauty of life... total relaxation – the kids will love dozing off to candlelight in the cosy wooden bunks and you'll be dropping off to the gentle breeze in the treetops and the gentle warmth of your wood-burning stove. Just as well that owls and squirrels aren’t jealous types...  Wonderfully romantic for couples and inspiring for families, there's heaps of space and freedom here. Watch the kids hurling themselves onto a rope swing, damming the stream and playing hide-and-seek. There are several circular walks within the 300 acre site, and flora and fauna fans will love seeking out unusual species in the ancient woodland.

From the host
We have six Treehouses, each as unique as the trees in which they are built. They are nestled in a hidden valley, in the heart of the Welsh mountains ... close to the sea and to the end of the hippy trail. Built with care, to blend seamlessly with the beautiful woodlands - a world away from the pressures of modern life. Cosy wood-burning stoves, flickering candles, fast flowing streams, wobbly bridges, whirling red kites, breathtaking walks and your own gorgeous tree-top home...
